3936 Fat bastard weight loss thread
Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

I started a keto diet 30 days ago and I've gone from 94kg to 88kg since then, and that's with about 6 cheat days where travel persuaded me to have beer and carby food. I combined it with cutting back a bit on the heavy drinking and started doing some modest exercise again (just some benchpressing and pullups/chinups), but when I've tried those things in the past without keto I didn't lose anywhere near as much weight, so this ketogenic dieting thing seems to be legit.

Insofar as it helps you lose weight, yes. It doesn't help you keep it off when you hit your goal wieght and get lazy, though.

How it works is by inducing ketogenesis, by exhausting your carb reserves, your body starts to devour itself. You can achieve this by fasting too, which has better long term results. "Keto" is just a rebranded atkins diet.

The crucial difference with keto is it's far simpler, without the 'phases' of different carb intakes Atkins has. You just eat under 50g ish of carbs a day and hope for the best. It definitely works, and I think people get very evangelical about it because you never really feel like you're on a diet, such is the satiating nature of a high fat and protein diet. I think a lot of people on it tend to just stay on it. I bet you go mental if you start eating carbs again after a dramatic stretch on abstinence.

I sort of accidentally have a keto diet as I don't like starchy food, or bread, or sweet stuff. I feel fine. I also have non-deliberately been doing 16/8 intermittent fasting for years because of work, so I have no useful data.

4483 Going barefoot - Some thoughts from an armchair anthropologist
This thread isn't meant to be an argument for or against barefoot running or walking, or whatever associated footwear is best.There are already a million and one youtuibe videos, forums posts, blogs etc. all covering the exact same arguments.
I made this thread because of a shower thought I had that I wanted to write down somewhere.

So the preamble; giving people padded heels generally fucks up their posture. You can slouch, your bum sticks out, your shoulders hunch up, you walk by swinging your legs and your head bobs up and down. It's awful and if you start walking like that it takes a lot of effort to retrain yourself to walk upright with a good posture.
When you walk or run barefoot, (or in minimalist shoes which meet all the criteria, and very few truly do), it's nearly impossible to walk with bad posture (at least for any significant distance). You have to forefoot strike, which forces you to walk upright, shoulders back, and you have to use your whole body which means moving your hips and core muscles.
So then, people ask if barefoot is so amazing, why did people ever start to wear modern-style shoes to begin with?
The reasoning that pretty much everyone always makes is along the lines of "it's more comfortable" or "you can run faster and not hurt as much" or things along those lines.
The arguments never quite add up, and this adds fuel to the arguments and cunt-offs that surround the subject.


Finally this leads to the point of this thread. I am a convert to minimalist running and walking, but my argument is nevertheless against it. And as far as I can remember, it's a reason that I haven't seen anywhere else.
The reason that our ancestors started wearing shoes with heels, and partly why people still do today, has little to do with comfort or fashion or sporting performance, even though these are the conscious reasons that everyone believes in.
The real reason:

I think our environment has become a lot tamer since the shoe was originally invented in a way that you don't give credit. I go mountaineering and if you attempted some of the stuff I've done barefooted your foot would either get cut off or fall off. To me the necessity of shoes feels self-evident from what I expect of them.

I would have presumed the increased thickness of the heel would have come from a pure mechanical position. either based on that that is the area that would wear down quickest so making it thicker would mean you could go longer without replacing shoes or that if you step on something you put your full weight on your heel so if you don't want things going through the shoe and into your foot you need to make it thicker.

I'm not a shoe historian or whatever but I can imagine the first shoe a hunter-gatherer wanting would just be a leather wrap, essentially - offering a bit of protection but still the 'feel' of the land, which would have been useful.

Thus something like those weird Vibrams would probably be pretty close.

My theory on prominent heels is because they'd have been useful for horseback riding, to keep your feet in stirrups - so a relatively modern invention, but a practical one at first. The fact they make you look taller and the shoes last longer probably helped make them the status quo, rather than people wanting that 16th century shwagga.

It's amazing how hard wearing your feet get if you let them - I've worked on my feet for most of my life, in shite, tough boots, so my feet are hard as fuck on the bottom. I actually can stand on glass without it piercing my foot, so I can only imagine what someone who goes barefoot running or indeed the tribal folk who have never worn shoes must be able to handle.

Heh, I've got a pair of those pictured (I use them as slippers). If you can stomach wearing five-fingers in public they might serve, but as comfortable as they are they do look like you wrapped your feet in rags. The "Icon" version, on the other hand, is comparatively stealthy. They look like trainers at the front (give or take being thin material, so if you wiggle your toes you can see it). I've worn the latter in public and have not yet drawn any comments from friends and colleagues.

A lot of threads on /fat/ seem to start with "I'm doing x, will it help y?" and I'm left wondering where x came from in the first place.

The short answer is yes, OP, doing frequent challenging leg exercises will probably make your lower body muscles grow. Is it the ideal way to do it? I don't know, but if you do it consistently over a long period of time you're likely to get bigger legs.

Interestingly Stan Efferding talks about doing 20 rep sets for other reasons. Something about the hormone response, or cellular response, or oxygen debt from the extreme demands of getting to that 20th rep... I'll have to look it up.

Not him but I find headphones help so yeah. Earmuffs also work and that is one of the reasons they exist.

What is happening is cold air is getting into your ear canal which is covered with sensitive nerve endings and lacks anything in the way of protection from the cold. Combined this leads to a brain-freeze in the ear.

My problem with running outside is the first twenty minutes. I can do it on a machine, I can establish a nice rhythm, get over that first wheezing bit, and then I'm good for a long time - outside in the cold, it seems to take a lot longer and there is more chance I would give up early on a run.

They're pretty good if you're serious about cycling, though I always think it's better to just get out there on the road. The issue for me was that it was just a bit boring to pedal in front of the telly and that. I'd either rather be at a gym or out in the real world.

Don't get an air resistance one, whatever you do. Fluid or magnetic is what you want. Also keep in mind that you WILL need some sort of fan pointing at you while you're doing it, you'll get incredibly hot very quickly.

I used them for years when I was training seriously. They work very well if they're set up properly. They don't feel like real riding, but they're close enough. It's boring as fuck, but it's not too bad if you listen to podcasts or whatever. I made a little desk that clipped onto my handlebars so I could catch up on my reading.

If you use slick tyres, a magnetic or fluid trainer and a concrete floor, they're reasonably quiet. Treaded tyres, a fan-based trainer or a hollow wooden floor will make a right old racket. I preferred the units with continually-variable resistance like the CycleOps Magneto - the ones with a resistance adjustment lever are a bit fiddly for interval training.

You'll probably want to do your turbo sessions in an unheated garage or shed, otherwise you'll boil your arse off. You don't get the cooling effect of the wind on a turbo, so you get hot quickly. You might still want to set up a fan if you tend to run hot. If you sweat heavily you'll want to drape a towel over your frame, otherwise your sweat will rot your paintwork.

2669 Voice "tuning"
Is it too late to do something with your voice if you are 22?

It is, well, "inconstant". That is, the speed, the loudness, the pitch tend to vary; sometimes up to the point being slightly uncontrollable (especially loudness; I may pronounce words loudly I intended to pronounce quietly and vice versa). The resulting sound is obviously not very nice, probably rasping and somewhat unclear.

I cannot provide any examples as I have neither the microphone, nor the working jack for it. For better or worse.

>I found out that I sound somewhat like a pretentious cunt, apart from screeching. Not a pleasant discovery indeed but still better than ignorance.

When I speak quietly, my voice goes really deep. Also when I'm drunk enough, girls have told me it goes sexually deep, Barry White style. When I'm tense, however, or if I become animated, it can go high pitched. I've also realised that I mumble and mutter at least 50% of the time. It really is eye opening recording yourself and listening/watching back, I come across as a total gimp sometimes and then at others as Mega Mr Monty Confidanté the Sexy Baritone Sexagram Man. Your body language, posture, tone, choice of words, delivery, timing, and yes, pitch - all these things combine to create an emphasis and provide emotion (or lack of) to your topic or point, or offer an allusion to what else you've got going on behind the eyes. It might sound shallow, but I've noticed the different ways people react to me based on my uncontrollable shifts in all of those qualities I just listed.

Margaret Thatcher famously subjected herself to speech training when she was running for Prime Minister the first time, and by that time, she was well into middle age. If you see early footage of her, her voice had a quite unpleasant, annoyingly shrieky tone and pitch to it. Like an endlessly lamenting housewife or a stern Victorian headmistress. But she was able to smooth all that out... and even if you hated her and her way of politics, you had to admit that her voice was not unpleasant to listen to.

Can affirm about speaking quietly, to an extent. Should I raise it to normal levels, things go not so smoothly.

I still wonder why at times I mumble and mutter - just like you - and at times sound almost decent. I lost the access to the recordings db recently so no free listening.

Hello. I've made my own fitness arms buildening regime. Thing.

Everynight I do:

40 x dumbbells curls,
40 x hammer lifts with dumbbells,
40 x dumbbell shoulder press,

I then do 30 of the above, the 20 then 10.

How is this regime? I've noticed my arms and shoulders have got a lot better. I've been doing 30 of each then descending in 10s for about 2 months now and I've just knocked it up to 40 then descending in 10s. I do a lot of cardio, running pretty much every free night.

I hope you're not planning to take Ostarine unless you have a proper PCT planned out.

Given that you don't even specify what fucking active ingredients are in your cough syrup that might possibly interact with Ostarine (highly fucking unlikely in any case) I doubt that you even know what PCT is.

Well as a chubby fucker you should lose weight until you get to the point that you can do a push-up. I assume you're at least able to run, right? Even if not very far? Start doing that every day. It'll do wonders for your heart and lungs. And more importantly combine that with watching what you eat. Cut out any easy sources of sugar like soft drinks and alcohol and sweets and excessive amounts of bread. Standard stuff ladm8.
